DJ Mo Twister did not hold back when he called out Mocha Uson for using a photo of police from Honduras in a Facebook post that has once again got netizens either fiercely attacking or passionately defending the former sexy star.

Last May 28, the newly appointed Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCCO) Assistant Secretary posted a photo of soldiers kneeling and seemingly praying, via her Mocha Uson Blog. With their heads down, the soldiers were in full battle gear, carrying guns and wearing bulletproof suits in the photo. However, looking closely, a blue image which was believed to be a flag was noticed by netizens. It was then quickly ruled out that the photo was that of police from Honduras and not the Philippines. Thus started another wave of attacks on Uson.

In response, via his Instagram account, the United States-based DJ lambasted Uson for the post and stated details about the photo.

“One issue lang. The photo isn’t our army. You see that little blue flag on each of the soldiers chest? That’s the flag of Honduras. These are their soldiers from 2015,” he said.

The ever-outspoken DJ stressed that such spread of wrong information has always been a practice of the newly-appointed assistant secretary.

“Mocha, the Assistant Secretary of the Presidential Communications Operations Office does this REGULARLY. Her and her followers will likely defend this by saying, ‘Okay, she used a picture to convey the message of prayer so don’t find negative in that,'” he added.

But what earned Mo Twister more reactions was when he directly referred to Uson as kuto (lice) and an “insult” to students and journalists.

“The problem is you’re insulting these soldiers, our soldiers, and everyone’s intelligence with your fake sh*t. Mocha, you are journalism kuto (lice). You are also an insult to every hardworking student or aspiring journalist,” he wrote.

To close, Twister attacked Uson’s appointment and lectured her to read up on a specific legislation: “You took away a job from someone more deserving dahil ‘yung ilong mo puno ng bahid ng t** ni (because your nose is filled with poop stains of) #DU30. @mochauson you read up on Section 4 of RA 6713, dumb***.”

Twister’s post was praised by his fans and followers, with some poking fun at the lice reference and Uson’s alleged “stupidity.”

Meanwhile, Uson has replied to her bashers via her Facebook blog. In a post on May 30 at 2:58 p.m., she explained that her use of the photo was meant to be a symbolism for soldiers’ bravery and act of surrender to God. She also pointed out that her post should not be taken too literally.

Ang caption ko lang ay ipanalangin natin ang ating mga sundalo. Hindi ko sinabi sundalo natin yan.

(My caption only asked for prayers for our soldiers. I did not say that those [in the picture] were our soldiers.) JB
